Plans for hotel at Patcham abandoned
Plans to redevelop the Patcham Court Farm site on the outskirts of Brighton (see previous post) are back on the drawing board after a major hotel group withdraws.
De Vere now says it is targetting a site nearer to the city centre in a move that would still generate a significant number of new jobs and inward investment. As a result, the council intends to put the site back on the market. The 3.6 acre plot at the junction of the A23 and A27 is earmarked in the local plan for employment uses.
It is expected that permission to re-market the site will be sought from the new policy and resources committee at its meeting in June.
